Exposure to methoxyacetic acid (MAA), a major byproduct of the paint industry, causes testicular atrophy in multiple species. This study demonstrates DNA breakdown in rat germ cells after exposure to MAA in vivo within 12 h, leading to 40% germ cell death by 24 h. Within 4 h of treatment, cytochrome c is released from the mitochondria into the cytosol(More)
Polyomaviruses, including BK and JC viruses, have been associated with graft failure, but have not commonly been associated with malignancy. We present a case of renal cell carcinoma arising in an allograft kidney, in which the tumor and metastasis contain viral DNA. Tumor and biopsy specimens from this patient were examined with hematoxylin & eosin,(More)
A case of malignant rhabdoid tumor of the liver associated with hypercalcemia of malignancy was studied. The karyotype of the liver primary was 46,XY,t(8;13)(q24.2;q33)[7]/46,XY[13], and of the brain metastasis 46,XY,t(8;13)(q24;q33)[5]/46,XY,t(7;13)(p14;q22) [3]/46,XY,t(1;2;3)(q25;q21;p21) [2]/46,XY[13], respectively. Band 8q24 was previously reported to(More)
A case of virilizing ovarian Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor overexpressing the BCL2 gene and including a novel clonal chromosomal rearrangement of chromosome 18, der(5)t(5;18)(p13;q12),+6,+12, der(18)r(5;18)(p15.3p13;p11.3q12) is described. Further studies of these rare tumors are necessary to ascertain the significance of the findings.
